Community Powered Lobbying

  • Harrisburg Capitol Building (map)

Every day there are corporate lobbyists in OUR Capitol lobbying on behalf of corporate interests and the 1%. Join MoH to lobby for pro-democracy, anti-corruption legislation so that every community in Pennsylvania has a voice in The People's House.

Last May, Speaker Turzai publicly committed to passing the Gift Ban: HB1291, to hold him and the rest of the Legislature accountable, we'll be lobbying in Harrisburg during the rest of session.

We'll also be lobbying on our other bills: an end to gerrymandering, open primaries, same-day registration, and no-excuse absentee ballot reform!

For more information on our legislative goals, legislative criteria, and legislative process visit: www.mohpa.org/legislative-goals.

///////////////////////////// Why Do We Lobby? /////////////////////////////
Lobbying breaks down the barriers of intimidation between us and our elected representatives. When we lobby, we reclaim power in our democracy often wielded only by donors and high-priced lobbyists.

First-time lobbyists are encouraged to come! We'll train you and pair you with an experienced MarchOnHarrisburg volunteer to meet with legislators and encourage legislators to cosponsor our bills.

/////////////////////////////////// LOGISITICS /////////////////////////////////////
